From an Art Boarding School to an Art College
At Stuart Hall, we are lucky to be surrounded by a vibrant artistic culture in Staunton and the surrounding area. Many local artists are inspired by the overwhelming natural beauty and the quaint charm of downtown, but there is also an avant-garde population of artists who push the bounds of traditional art.
Like the Stuart Hall student, these artists take risks to express concepts and ideas unique to their vision. We cooperate with some of these art galleries and organizations to display student art in local shows. This gives us the opportunity to show the work of our talented students to the local community.
For student artists interested in pursuing art as a profession, we have a long tradition of portfolio building that has helped our graduates attend world-class art colleges. Recent graduates have matriculated to the Rhode Island School of Design, Savannah College of Art and Design, Pratt Institute, and the Parsons School of Design.
